Does God Exist Philosophically?

Does God exist or not? Does it even matter? Many people today base their daily conduct on a “social contract” view of the world -- it just makes sense to treat others well, maintain ethics in business, and lovingly support our families. Those of us with resources and opportunities somehow have a social obligation to “give back” to our community. This is a rational view of the world, and we don’t need any kind of supernatural notion of “absolute truth” or morality to adhere to these common sense principles. Do we? Check out some of the startling realities…

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
